Compare the lack of attention in the prestige press to this case with the media blitz of misleading speculation about the Treyvon Martin case.
What was it John Derbyshire was condemned for saying again?
A small cohort of blacks—in my experience, around five percent—is ferociously hostile to whites and will go to great lengths to inconvenience or harm us. A much larger cohort of blacks—around half—will go along passively if the five percent take leadership in some event. They will do this out of racial solidarity, the natural willingness of most human beings to be led, and a vague feeling that whites have it coming.
Leaving aside the accuracy of his numerical estimates, that seems… well, correct.
Avoid concentrations of blacks not all known to you personally.
Would have been pretty good advice in this situation.
But of course the important thing is not to let this distract us from the important stuff, like how racist white people are:
Baltimore’s top cop warned Tuesday against “race-baiting” amid rising tensions across the nation, citing the Trayvon Martin case and cautioning that a video generating outrage on the Internet of a tourist being beaten and stripped in downtown Baltimore does not appear to depict a hate crime.
Remember, it’s the white man’s fault.
